    Hi! So I found out today that I'm going to have a K/1 combo today. I will have the top incoming K students and the solid "middle" 1st graders. We chose the class based on the data we have. I am super excited but nervous because this is new to me. Has anyone done a K/1 combo before? If so can you give me some ideas of ways to teach K/1 together and juggle the two grades. Thanks so much!

    Will you be keeping the Ks next year when they move to 1st and getting new Ks?

    We found there were times that we needed to split them. We referred to them as the older learners and the younger learners instead of K and 1.
